Man Utd legend Gary Neville slams Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes for 'waving arms' at team-mate in furious rant

GARY NEVILLE reckons Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes need to stop 'waving their arms in the air' at team-mates.

And the ex-Manchester United defender reckons Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team look like a 'disconnected' team with 'no style or identity'.

Man Utd were beaten 4-2 by Leicester on Saturday and are without a win in three Premier League games.

Boss Solskjaer is under increasing pressure with Liverpool set to visit Old Trafford on Sunday.

But United legend Neville lashed out at arguably the two biggest names on the team-sheet – Ronaldo and Fernandes – for their attitude and its negative impact on the squad.

Neville said on Sky Sports: "I watched Ronaldo and Fernandes up front… nothing.

"I saw them flailing their arms at team-mates, which I didn't like, and that needs to stop. 

"A pattern started to emerge in the second half of the front of the team and the back of the team being disconnected.


"Man Utd ended up in a position where they have two teams – the front five, the egos, the great players – and the back five.

They ended up with a disconnected, not compact unit that Leicester found it really easy to play against."

Ronaldo, 36, was even stopped from storming off the pitch and down the tunnel following the defeat, according to reports.

Neville continued his attack on his former club, saying they 'act like babies' after conceding a goal – before questioning Solskjaer's tactics.

He added: "This Man Utd team are also poor in how they react to goals.

"If they concede a goal, they start acting like babies and do their own thing.

"If they score a goal, they puff their chest out and their egos come out.

"This Man Utd team play in attack without a style or identity, but they've got brilliant players similar to PSG maybe in how they play.

"What they have to try and do is get into a shape of some kind and put in a little bit of work in that shape.

"On Saturday they didn't do that. They broke rank and either didn't listen to their coach or he didn't give them instruction.

"Whichever one that is, it's bad, and they need to correct that quickly otherwise they'll lose a lot of football matches.
